I really enjoyed the Tristano class and garnered some insight into his playing and music in general.In the late 70's when I started listening to jazz I came across an article in which Anthony Braxton spoke very highly of Lennie so I tracked down some of his music and have been on board ever since.That was a great story you told about your first conversation with him and your future interactions must have been equally interesting.

My jazz interests mainly fall in the free jazz realm,although Ellington is probably my favorite jazz artist,but a few of my favorite pianists are Muhal Richard Abrams,Dave Burrell,Alexander Von Sclippenbach,Cecil Taylor,Matthew Shipp and Hilton Ruiz.So I was particularly intrigued with your discussion and breakdown of Descent into the Malestrom and Digression,I have always thought Digression to be a hauntingly beautiful piece and your commentary shed a little light on some subtleties unbeknownst to me.
